Everest Sherpa Culture Trekking

An Excellent Mount Everest Holiday with an easy stroll on the rim of the Kathmandu Valley, where we gain a first distant view of Mount Everest. A short flight then takes us up into the Khumbu, a region of high peaks and valleys in the shadow of the world’s greatest peak. Here, our relaxing week of trekking allows us to experience the unrivalled mountain scenery of the Khumbu, including the classic view of Mount Everest and Ama Dablam from Thyangboche Monastery. Visiting a succession of Sherpa villages, surrounded by fluttering prayer flags and glistening snow-capped peaks, the popular myth of “Shangri-La” will seem all-too-real. On our return to Kathmandu, the early morning Everest Flight will provide a suitably dramatic finale. Suitable for any weekend hiker, this short trek offers an excellent introduction to the delights of trekking in the Himalayas, including those all-important views of Mount Everest.

Happy Clients

This is the first time for our group to visit the Nepal, Bhutan and Kashmir region and we have enjoy it very much. It is very fortunate for us, being our first trip to select your company to arrange for us the tour, and we are very please with your service and support, and your co-ordination with the Bhutan operator. For the Indian operator, except for some minor situations, overall it is satisfactory.
I believe there will be more trips to come and will recommend to you potential future travellers there.
